Superhero movies and TV have been blowing up recently, especially with the likes of Marvel and DC. Whether you’re into the genre or not, there’s no doubt that superhero stories are extremely popular at the moment, so much so we’re seeing lots of new AAA Marvel games coming out soon. But what other games based on Marvel or DC comics would you like to see?
With Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy launching this week, we thought we could ask you guys what your favorite Marvel or DC superheroes/stories are and what kind of games you would like to see made in the future? What heroes/stories have not been explored much in the gaming space? And what kind of genre would you like to see them tackle?
Big budget games based on these Blockbuster IPs tend to focus on multiplayer/Live Service or microtransaction-heavy games. Thankfully, Guardians of the Galaxy seems to be giving us a true single player Action-Adventure game without any DLC or microtransactions, but that doesn’t mean it's the only IP that would do well in that same space.
Of course, The Avengers are the big names and tend to get focused on a lot, and the upcoming Marvel's Midnight Suns may not focus on all of the big names but most of them are there. And obviously Spider-Man is Sony’s IP that they are seemingly dead-set on keeping to themselves. But where’s the love for other superheroes and their beloved stories?
What do you think? Which Marvel or DC superheroes/stories are your favorite? What other games based on Marvel or DC comics would you like to see? Would you like to see a shooter? Strategy game? Maybe even a traditional sim? Let’s debate!
